NORTHERN DISTRICTS GYMNASTIC CLUBSchool Programs
The NDGC offers School Programs for primary and secondary schools. We take bookings from one-off lessons to full-term and year programs.
Our coaches can run programs at your school or alternatively you can come and train at WA’s premier gymnastic club. Alternatively, lessons can be booked at our club in Balcatta using our excellent facilities.
The programs are developed to fit the individual needs of each student/school and tie in with the requirements of the Australian Curriculum. All of our coaches have nationally recognised accreditations and valid working with children checks.
On top of general gymnastics we are available to help your school prepare your students to compete in the Interschool Gymnastics Challenge which occurs around August every year.
What does gymnastics training offer young children?
Gymnastics is one of the few sports that can offer children the opportunity to tip upside down and develop physical abilities that are important for their overall development. Gymnastics is the basis for all sports and by incorporating gymnastics based training into children’s weekly activities, you will increase their ability to perform physically and mentally. Studies have shown that children who are exposed to gymnastics are physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger and more capable by 30%.
Additional benefits gymnastics offers:
- Enhanced self-esteem through learning skills not taught in any other sport
- Development of spatial awareness
- Development of safe landing skills (applicable to all sports and life situations)
- Improved strength, posture and coordination (also applicable to all sport and life situations)
